America’s First Lady Melania Trump will not be required to wear the hijab as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton were forced to do.
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said that Saudi Arabia welcomes “any style in clothing,” when it comes to allowing Melania to skip wearing the hijab.
Liberals might freak out because of this favoritism but most of the voters on our side loves this decision. It seems that Saudi Arabia respects President Trump a lot more than previous leaders like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. I like watching and hearing about stuff like this.
America’s first lady has not been “ordered” to dress conservatively in Saudi Arabia, the country chosen by her husband as his first official overseas destination. Along with meetings on the US president’s itinerary, there will also reportedly be time for entertainment in the lavish Arab kingdom.
While the choice of the first country to be visited by Trump as America’s 45th president has been widely discussed in the media, a question has arisen whether there is a chance to see the US president’s wife covered in a traditionally strict Muslim attire.
Women in Saudi Arabia, including foreign visitors, are typically expected to wear a floor length dress – abaya, and a head scarf. However, when asked whether the US first lady would have to dress accordingly, a Saudi Arabia official said Riyadh “usually doesn’t demand” a specific dress-code, but rather “accepts suggestions.”
“We welcome any style in clothing,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir told the media on Thursday, as cited by RIA Novosti.
